Waitress was nice and polite but service was kind of slow despite not being too busy. Breakfast was great tasting fit a variety of meals. You also get a lot for your money. Only bad thing was they forgot the eggs on one of the plates.

I went to this restaurant and there was only one other couple in the building and was told I didn't have time to wait on me three times so I went ahead and left and didn't get to eat there. I was looking forward to it as well.

This Cozy Café is almost empty each time I have been in. I go about 11:15 a couple of times a week and have the place to myself just about. It's homey and the wait staff are prompt, friendly, and attentive. They offer daily lunch specials that have been very good so far. Reasonably priced at under $10 a plate,... More

Wow where do I start. We were a table of 7. Now one else was there. We ordered Cavatelli. The ones that got meatballs the meat was cold inside. Those were taken back and microwaved. We ordered extra breadsticks which we assumed would come with our meals. No, they came 1st. My daughter made a point of asking that the... More

I've eaten at 4 of the Cozy Cafe restaurants now, and have found them to have consistently good "down home" style foods. I still haven't gotten breakfast. The food was fresh, hot and tasted wonderful. Friendly staff, clean dining area, but this one closes at 2pm. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

We recommend Cozy Cafe as a nice place for breakfast. We found the cafe atmosphere nice (although the floors were slippery - and not from water). There are booths, tables, and stools at the 'bar'. We felt the food was served in generous portions - the pancakes being the size of the plates! They have a children's A La Carte... More

Cozy Cafe serves basic comfort food for a good price. After visiting about 3 times, I can't recommend it. With each visit there was either a mistake in the order or a long delay in receiving food. The servers are always kind and apologize but the service didn't improve.
